Easy to grow, bright neon green base, and big fluffy purple polyps. ORA has done it again with their Birds of Paradise. It's become one of the most iconic SPS corals for reefers due to its beautiful swaying polyps and relative ease of care. The branches on the ORA Birds of Paradise are much thicker than your typical birdsnest, giving it a more full look. If most birdnest corals branches are thin like toothpicks, think of this one more like chopsticks. 


We recommend the ORA Birds of Paradise Birdsnest to those looking to try their first SPS coral but want something more forgiving. It makes a great piece for those looking to keep some SPS, but still want a relatively easy and low maintenance tank. If you've never kept one before and it's available, try one out! You won't regret it and will be mesmerized by its fluffy goodness.
